Via Magazine would like to present you with the answer to your personal and spiritual needs â€“ Jesus Christ.
With Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour:
- We become children of God.
- We are moored to the Rock that will hold us safely in any storm or strong current of life.
- We are given a peace that passes our understanding.
- We discover Godâ€™s goodness greatly exceeds our expectations.
- We know our sins are forgiven.
We cannot steer our own way to Heaven. Our sins separate us from God forever unless we choose to accept the payment that the Lord Jesus Christ made for us on the cross, when He paid for our sins Himself. He is the door to Heaven and to a complete and fulfilled life on earth.
It is important to read the Bible for yourself. All of the Bible quotations used in Via are from the New King James version. Find out Godâ€™s message to you and treasure it in your heart. Look for the hidden â€˜heartâ€™ in the magazine.
If you have any unanswered questions, please write to us. We always enjoy hearing from our readers.

Sometimes we get the feeling that we are alone with our troubles in the world. We worry about what is going to happen next. These are not new feelings. In 1 Kings the prophet Elijah acted in a strong and brave manner for God one day, but felt alone and feared for his life the next.
God is not a Vending Machine
Vending machines are simple â€“ drop in a few coins, get your drink or treat, turn your back and walk away. You do your part, they do their part and everybody is happy â€“ except when they donâ€™t do their part.
